Fambridge Yacht Haven Marina, UK East Coast

Fambridge Yacht Haven Marina, in Essex, is spread across two sites, the marina provides fully serviced pontoon berths and undercover boat storage and the Yacht Station provides deep water swinging moorings and a 120 metre visitors' pontoon. The marina offers excellent shelter and very good facilities. Both sites provide security and CCTV coverage.

The marina is close to the quiet village of North Fambridge which has an excellent pub and a rail link to London. The historic sailing town of Burnham On Crouch is only 15 minutes (or two stops) away on the train, heading towards Southminster, and provides more services if needed.

The marina has a small shop and chandlers. There is 24 hour access to the marina at all states of the tide.

From here it is a short distance to the open waters of the Thames Estuary and the peaceful cruising grounds of the Rivers Alde, Deben, Orwell, Stour, Thames and Medway. If, you are feeling adventurous France, Belgium and Holland are within an easy days sail away.

Fambridge Marina is part of the Yacht Haven Group.

The Approach

Fambridge Yacht Haven is located at North Fambridge on the north bank of the River Crouch approximately 6nm upriver of Burnham on Crouch. 

The River Crouch and approaches are well marked with lit channel markers as far as Baltic Wharf, Wallasea Island. Upriver of Baltic Wharf is not lit for approximately 5nm until you reach the visitors pontoon and Stow Post. The river is wide and presents no problems if you keep to the center of the river.

Various speed limits apply along the river.

The Entrance

The Yacht Station is on the north bank of the river at Longpole Reach and the Marina is just beyond in Stow Creek the entrance of which is marked by a special marker known as the Stow Post. Enter the creek leaving Stow Post to port and keep within the buoyed channel leading towards the marina which is to starboard.
